Thank you to everyone who entered the competition :) However, there can only be one winner, and that is: Elaine Fitzgerald!

Yes, it’s giveaway time! Local duo Sandra Dunbar and Meg Pell, who live on the Mornington Peninsula, have teamed up to write Carbs By Numbers – a cookbook where each recipe has 15g of carbs or less per serve.
Every recipe comes with a gorgeous photo, extensive nutrition details and is also gluten-free. Recipes include artichoke, hazelnut and bacon soup (you had me at bacon!), cauliflower couscous with blueberries and preserved lemon, and steak strips with mustard and buttered celeriac. To tempt you to enter, the authors have kindly shared a recipe for you to try.
